Hi Guys,

SEASONS GREETINGS!

I have a problem. I am at present collecting music from the 40's to the 80's through a file sharing program called Limewire.
Through this program, I have been able to download many hundreds of tunes, many of which are no longer heard.

In the past, the album art downloaded automatically with the tunes. However, for the past few months even though I have downloaded more than five hundred tunes, no album art is being downloaded. I cannot accept that album art is simply unavailable for so many tunes. I use Windows Media Player 11 and my Operating System is Windows XP Professional.

Could it be that something is wrong with either WMP 11 or Windows XP that is preventing the downloads?


Please advise.


With THanks.


Compton

I suggest trying a Limewire forum.

You know, of course, that such software tends to increase your chances of infection.

This problem is a lot more common than you think. There are a few sites and utilities that will do this. Try this one.

Using Limewire for music sharing is Illegal and a violation of the Copyright
